HighScope International Conference

MAY 12 – MAY 14, 2021


Annual HighScope International Conference

May 12–14, 2021

​Join your peers for three days immersed in dynamic professional learning at the 2021 HighScope International Conference. We are planning to provide a hybrid in-person and virtual experience of educator-led workshops filled with best teaching practices, the latest trends, and strategies that you can immediately put to use in your classroom or program.

The HighScope International Conference has been inspiring educators, administrators, and researchers for nearly 50 years. Designed to empower the educator and ensure young children receive a high-quality education, attendees return to the classroom with in-depth knowledge, new ideas, and the confidence to help children succeed.

You don’t want to miss the opportunity to connect with like-minded peers and share and learn from the experiences of your fellow educators and leaders. The in-person portion of the hybrid conference will accommodate 500 people or fewer at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan, while the virtual option will feature live-streamed and recorded general and selected breakout sessions.

HighScope has no higher priority than protecting the health and safety of our attendees, presenters, and community. We will continue to monitor local and national safety guidelines and we will be prepared to host a virtual-only HighScope conference, if advised. We appreciate your patience as we move forward with this new approach to planning our conference.
